The Terence Pepper Collection has been compiled by leading photographic historian and curator Terence Pepper over the past 40 years. It contains over 2,000 photographs and prints including many by leading photographers and historic news picture libraries and includes prints from the early days of photography through to the present day. The scope of the collection is wide-reaching but is especially strong on portraits, the 1960s, fashion and female photographers.
